Notes

Description
"From the sports phenomenon - called by ESPN the world's most famous female basketball player - and youth role model comes an inspirational memoir exploring the highs and lows of her life, the bullying she endured, and the assumptions she has redefined, as well as her passion for the game, and empowering readers to be true to themselves and love who they are on the inside and out"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
Griner, the dunking phenom and national sensation who is shattering stereotypes and breaking boundaries, now shares her coming-of-age story, revealing how she found her strength to overcome bullies and to embrace her authentic self. Possessing a combination of size and athleticism never before seen in women's basketball, she is equally famous for making headlines off the court, for speaking out on issues of gender, sexuality, body image and self-esteem. The Phoenix Mercury star has heard every vicious insult in the book, enduring years of taunting that began in middle school and continues to this day, but has learned to remain true to herself, rising above the haters trying to take her down.
